Mallorca

Although I wish I could be a full-time traveller and photographer, sadly that's not the case.  The day job involves working in the self catering cottages industry in the South West of England. Back in late 2015, the company I worked for decided we would dip our toes in the overseas market and would work … Continue reading Mallorca

The Perils Of Portugal

Way back in the summer of 2012. I had just spent the weekend in Ireland celebrating the wedding of my friends Ed and Leanne, whom I had lived with in Brisbane.  My head was sore and I was counting the costs of the trip as I walked through Exeter Airport arrivals.  Within moments of turning … Continue reading The Perils Of Portugal

Kata Tjuta

The Red Centre

Although this was a part of The Groovy Grape trip, I felt due to the subject it was worth a post all of its own.  I just didn't want to overload the previous post with too many photos! The Red Centre pretty much included the reasons why I booked this trip -  Uluru (Ayers Rock), … Continue reading The Red Centre

St Kilda Breakwater

Melbourne & St Kilda

After The Whitsundays I flew back home to Brisbane.  Most of the crew had packed and left for Melbourne themselves with the relocation of the company.  I quickly made plans that I too would head to Melbourne. In part, to meet up with those friends but also, to start exploring again.  I would be flying … Continue reading Melbourne & St Kilda

Lake Wabby

Fraser Island

It had reached early September and the Queensland days were becoming warmer.  It had been a tough few months at work and I was becoming increasingly concerned that I wasn't actually travelling any more.  Aside from a few weekend trips to Surfers or Australia Zoo it had been months since I'd explored a new place. … Continue reading Fraser Island

Fear and Loathing in Brisvegas

This next installment has taken a little while.  In the now, I've had to find a new place to live and let's not even talk about my working life.  Let's just say I've had plenty of other things on my mind! This next post was always going to be a tricky one to put together … Continue reading Fear and Loathing in Brisvegas

Little Wategos

A Magical Mystery Tour

Following on from my last post; I would stay in Byron for a few days before heading onward to Brisbane in the search for work. After the first nights antics on the town, most of us packed our bags and headed onward in different directions.  This left me, another James and Lisa, on our own. … Continue reading A Magical Mystery Tour

Exploring around Hat Head

Waves of the East Coast

The time had finally come to leave Manly.  The past 3 months had taken their toll on my bank account (read empty!) and now I needed to find some work, otherwise I'd be heading home much earlier than originally planned. I realised Manly, especially as Summer was drawing to a close, wasn't the place I … Continue reading Waves of the East Coast

The Three Sisters

The Blue Mountains

Aside from seeing the New Year in at Sydney Harbour I only really had one other touristy desire whilst I was in the Sydney area.  That one thing was to visit The Blue Mountains. In typical fashion though, it turned out to be a bit of a last minute rush ... I delayed it right … Continue reading The Blue Mountains
